OCLC takes control of library network

The Ohio-based Online Computer Library Center Inc. has become the sole shareholder of the European library network it has worked with for 30 years.

OCLC said Tuesday is purchased the remaining 40 percent of shares in OCLC Pica Group BV, a European supplier of library software and services. OCLC in 2000 purchased 60 percent of the shares in Pica, a Dutch library service provider that later became incorporated as OCLC Pica Group in 2002.
